There are times when God calls us to things we don’t think we are capable of and would never have dreamed of doing. That is what my life has ended up being. I never saw myself staying in Mexico for eight years. Last year I read a post by my friend Mare. It has challenged me to embrace the life that God has given me.
That was just the beginning…
I continue daily to give my hopes, plans, dreams and fears to God.
But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.”
2 Corinthians 12:9a
I like how God is referred to as LORD frequently in the Old Testament. LORD is the English transliteration of the Hebrew name for God, Yahweh (YHWH). It signifies his position as covenant Maker and Keeper. He has started a good work in our lives and he will continue to do so. The LORD has entered that covenant with us when he became our Savior. He MADE the covenant and he will KEEP it.
Live the life God has called you to. Nothing will ever bring more peace than being in his will.
A soft whisper touched my heart, “I started the good work in your life and will stay with you till the work is finally finished on the day I return. Remember, My grace is all you need. My strength and power is perfected in your weakness… My child, embrace the life I’ve given you!“
